Last night, we saw the conclusion to the Lindsay Lohan-related saga that began on last week’s Double Exposure episode, titled “Is Lindsay Here Yet?” And frankly, I’m not sure what all the fuss was about.
Recap in case you missed the beginning of the drama: Lohan was running late to a photo shoot for her 6126 legging line (those two words together still slay me!), causing our favorite frantic photographers to become, well, more frantic. Losing a sizable amount of money due to someone’s 11-hour tardiness will do that to you, though. For the record, Lohan claimed via Twitter last week that the events shown were “bulls—” and that she was purposely given her the wrong call time for the shoot, saying “it was all a set-up.”
I don’t know which is true; my Magic 8-Ball, which settles all pop culture-related disputes, is refusing to cooperate due to lack of interest in the situation. Instead, it gave me a better piece of sounds advice it learned from Lindsay last night: Clean your stripper pole before use. Oh, Magica, always looking out for me.
Sorry, back to Earth — or wherever these people exist. The team had to rush their set ups because Lindsay had to get to her friend’s party or said fiesta-throwing pal was “going to hate” Lindsay. True story. The situation and Lindsay’s antsy demeanor pushed the team in stress-out mode because they had to get all their necessary set-ups complete before their subject (also known as the lioness by way of wind-blown Sasha Fierce) took off.
But like I said before, I didn’t really get all the commotion was about the episode. All I saw was a bunch of people calling Lindsay “the most beautiful woman in the world,” “smokin’,” and a litany of other compliments. Nothing to be mad about there, Lindsay. And Lohan’s biggest offense was probably ungraciousness — dashing away from the makeup artist before he finishes is simply unkind, which had nothing to do with getting the wrong call time. But bad celeb behavior is hardly cause for the world to crumble. If it was, we all would have been swallowed by the ground long ago. No?
Did you watch, PopWatchers? Were you more outraged by her behavior than I was? Frankly, I found the photos more interesting than all the “drama.” By the end, all I wanted to do is fling my hair and pout my lips to a waiting camera. But that’s not really a new feeling and a totally different subject.
